COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS (AP) - Texas A&M has allowed two quarterbacks to set school records for passing against its nation’s worst pass defense this season.

This week the 21st-ranked Aggies are in for another challenge when they face No. 20 Baylor and star quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Griffin is the second most efficient passer in the nation and his 360 yards of total offense a game rank fifth.

Texas A&M defensive coordinator Tim DeRuyter says Griffin is “as important to his team as anyone in the country” and that he’s a “game changer.”

The Aggies are aware that he’s a more accurate passer this season, but that doesn’t mean they’ll forget about his threat as a runner after he had a 71-yard touchdown dash against them last season.

Texas A&M is working on improving its pass defense after yielding almost 348 yards passing a game this year.
